What you’re not going to do is come after Channel 8’s Demetria Obilor.
On Friday, a viewer’s Facebook post criticizing the Dallas traffic anchor for being a “size 16/18 woman in a size 6 dress” went viral. Jan, the woman behind the post, wrote, “She looks ridiculous. I understand that when I watch Channel 8 I’m going to get biased reporting and political correctness, but clearly they have taken complete leave of their senses.”
Twitter quickly came to Obilor’d defense. Even Chance the Rapper chimed in.
We’ve reached out to Obilor, who tweeted her thanks to fans for coming to her defense.
And, while Jan won’t be tuning in, there are tons of viewers who are ready to see Obilor shine on the morning news.
